Continuity mistake: The train that transports The Haynes Sisters and Wallace and Davis from Florida to Vermont is shown as being of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway in one sequence, and of the Southern Pacific Railroad in another. Neither railway ran on the east coast of the U.S.Jimmy Short
Continuity mistake: There's a mysterious moving pitcher of buttermilk and a tray of sandwiches in one of Bing's scenes in the Inn.
Continuity mistake: On the train scene in the dining car, watch the table. Every camera angle change, the salt and pepper shaker, the ashtray, the flower, everything, jumps around on the table.
Continuity mistake: During the General's anniversary/reunion scene, the camera follows him into the room, the candles on the cake are lit. Angle changes to the left, as he continues to walk, the candles are out. Back to behind, the candles are lit again.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Wallace and Davis are changing clothes before going to see the Haines sisters, Danny Kaye steps behind a trunk to change pants. When the scene cuts to him actually taking them off the trunk is taller than it was before the cut (for modesty, I assume). It was thigh high before the cut and almost waist high after.
Continuity mistake: During the morning outside following the buttermilk scene in the inn where "Counting My Blessings" was sung, Bob arrives in a jeep to talk to the general. Bob shows him a hand bill for the upcoming show, which has a reddish top trim. He sits down with the hand bill on his leg in order to light a match for the general's cigarette. The hand bill falls to the ground. However, in the next shot, the hand bill is in Bob's right outside coat pocket with other papers (he may have done that after the previous shot to keep it from falling to the ground but it wasn't caught). (01:08:00)
Continuity mistake: When Wallace and Davis are on the train heading for the club car, they bump the door to the stateroom where the Haynes' sisters are. In the morning when they are getting ready to disembark, the sisters are in sleeping berths, not the stateroom.
Continuity mistake: When Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye enter the club car on the train when heading to Vermont, Bing Crosby puts his suitcase on the floor next to the booth in which they are seating. In fact, Bing places his hat on the bag. The ladies enter the car, join them for a talk (and a song) but when the group gets up to leave the bag is missing.bnemirow
